Yorkshire is a big county. Can you be a little more specific re how far from Leeds you wish to travel? Also what kind of thing do they enjoy most? Do you want out or indoor activity? One place that springs to mind, just a short journey down the M1 and not far off the M1 near Rotherham is the Magna Science Centre. See http://www.visitmagna.co.uk/

Hi again Gillian

Magna is indoor so for outdoor, but think nearest is just over the border in Derbyshire, have a look at Go Ape for juniors. https://goape.co.uk/booking_timepursuit

Or have a look at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Again its just down the M1 between Wakefield and Barnsley. http://www.ysp.co.uk/

The main question is what does he like? There's the national Railway Museum in York, the Abbey in Whitby, there's Magna as previously mentioned, the Abbey in York. There is York's Chocolate story: http://www.yorkschocolatestory.com/ , York Castle Museum, Yorvik, to name a few.
